(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson men's swim team went right down to the wire on Senior Day Saturday afternoon, but visiting Franklin & Marshall held on for a slim, 133-129 win.

The Red Devils needed to win the final event, the 400-free relay but were only able to capture second and third as the Diplomats escaped with the four-point decision.

First-year Damon St. Prix (Barbados/Peddie School, N.J.) anchored the second-place free relay to a time of 3:18.13. He added a win in the 200-freestyle with a time of 1:47.73 and placed second in the 100-free with a mark of 49.88.

Classmate Logan Cort (Brookeville, Md./Mercersburg) swam to wins in the 1000-freestyle (10:15.05) and the 500-free (4:57.42) and was part of the second-place free relay. Sophomore Tyler Catania (Spotswood, N.J./St. Joseph) touched the wall second in the 500-freestyle and also joined the free relay.

Junior Will Freeman (Haddonfield, N.J./Pennington School) posted wins in the 200-individual medley (1:57.53) and the 200-breaststroke (2:12.53) and was second with the 400-medley relay and in the 100-breaststroke.

Senior Kiernan Jordan (Dumfries, Va./Forest Park) won the 200-butterfly with a time of 1:57.46 and placed second in the 200-butterfly and the 400-medely relay. Classmate Ben Shapiro (Wynnewood, Pa./Friends' Central) anchored the medley relay, won the 100-breaststroke (59.70) and was second in the 200-breaststroke.

Junior Graham Novitch (Scarsdale, N.Y./Scarsdale) claimed a pair of silvers with the medley and free relays and placed third in the both the 100 and 200-yard backstroke events.

The Red Devils slip to 7-3 overall and 2-2 in the Centennial Conference. They are home again on Wednesday, hosting Gettysburg College at 7:00 pm.
